Russell T. Davies has confirmed that a fourth series of Torchwood is in the works.
Speaking to TV Guide Magazine, the show’s creator revealed that he is hoping to get started on the new run in January 2010.
The recession has hit British television, but fingers crossed, it will be a go. We expect things to start to move in January. We’ve got great ideas for the show. I think there’s a further lease on life for many years to come, but certainly for a [fourth season].
Davies previously said of a possible fourth series:
I could write you scene one of series four right now. I know exactly how to pick it up. I’ve got a shape in mind, and I’ve got stories. I know where you’d find Gwen and Rhys, and their baby, and Jack, and I know how you’d go forward with a new form of Torchwood.
Torchwood: Children Of Earth ended its run on BBC One with a respectable 5.81 million viewers in July this year.
